    It's in the carburator. If its like my '79, it should be on the back side, you'll see the steel fuel line going into it, remove that and the filter is in there.... a little trickey, but doable

    Use two wrenches as a counter force to the other when removing/installing! Be careful!

    Be very careful! I changed mine about 5 months ago and the threads were stripped. Fuel was leaking out of the carburetor and I had to have it rebuilt. It wasn't cheap!
